Tips for Student Success

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we get ready to start the second semester of the school year, we want to emphasize that successful students benefit from a strong school-home partnership. After 18 months of blended and distance learning, some of our students have needed time to readjust to the routine of school.

Teachers and schools are doing everything they can to help students be successful. However, each student must take personal responsibility for their education. We have created the Believe and Achieve Tips for Student Success resource to emphasize the mindset needed to succeed.

Additionally, we wanted to encourage you to continue to take an active role in your child’s education. Here are some ways you can help.

  • Make sure students are at school and on time. Attendance is the foundation of success in school.

  • Students need to learn to manage their time and workload. This is part of becoming a high school student.

  • Check Infinite Campus and Schoology for grades and attendance.

  • Check-in with your student regularly - have them show you what they are doing.

You can find the Achieve and Believe Tips for Student Success in THIS DOCUMENT.

Tutorial Schedule: Semester 2

We are making some revisions to our tutorial schedule for Semester 2. Once we have an updated tutorial schedule, we will send it out ASAP.

If you have questions on whether your student has attended tutorial, please contact an Assistant Principal Secretary at 619-956-0424 or 619-956-0425 or stop by the Administration office.

Asking for help is a sign of STRENGTH Wolf Pack!!

Mental Health Resources

Our Teacher Librarian Mrs. Sannwald, has created a wonderful Mending Matters Resource Library page! Click HERE to check it out!

If you are in need of any mental health resources, please reach out to your Guidance Counselor or our Mending Matters resources linked above.

In the event you are in crisis after school hours,

please call 9-1-1 or go to a hospital immediately to get professional help.

Loss of Privilege Policy

Loss of Privilege (LOP) List: This exists to support the idea that our primary function is “Academics First” and that student behaviors and choices need to prioritize attendance and following school rules. Students may earn their way off of the LOP list through attendance at detention and / or Saturday school after talking with their Assistant Principal. They can also lose a privilege that was granted (i.e. serving Saturday School to be eligible to purchase a Dance Ticket, but then repeat actions (or new actions) that put them back on LOP so that attending Dance is no longer available to them and a dance ticket refund is issued). All students begin Semester 2 off the list. Totals from Semester 1 do not count for Semester 2.

See our Loss of Privilege Policy HERE.

The Scholarship Club

Students! After graduation, will you be attending a trade school, community college, or 4-year University? If your answer is yes, do you need money to help pay for it? If so, we would like to invite you to attend the Scholarship Club that is hosted by the Counseling Department. At the scholarship club, we will introduce you to scholarship opportunities and provide time to work on scholarship applications under the guidance of a counseling staff member. For additional information, please contact Ms. Womack in the Counseling Office. The club meets Mondays during lunch and period 7 in the College/Career Center (L-1) located across from the library.
